Mindful artistic expression can help students reduce stress and calm their minds as they deal with remote learning, being separated from school friends and teachers, and not knowing when things will get back to normal. Zentangle® is a relaxing way to draw beautiful images with patterns. It was created by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts and you can always go to zentangle.com to learn more about it. Ms. Shimabukuro, certified Zentangle teacher, Ed.D. (CZT), is providing Zentangle lessons for Alameda students this school year.
